General Gym Rules

We hope you will have a positive experience at our gym. Here are some simple rules to keep the gym safe, clean, and smooth running. (And the coaches happy!)

  •  Do gymnastics safely
  •  Get your coach’s permission before getting on equipment
  •  Get your coach’s permission before attempting new moves
  •  Walk from place to place
  •  Watch where you walk
  •  If you leave the class, tell your coach

Flip City Specific Gym Rules

  • Please be on time for you class. It is important to have a proper warm-up before doing any gymnastics skills. This is especially important for preschool aged children as some are too shy to join in if they are late.

  • No food or drinks in the gym area. You may bring a water bottle that is labelled with your child’s name.

  • Students need to wait for their coach to call them onto the gym floor. (No playing on equipment while waiting for class to start)

  • Parents, please stay out of the gym area, there is a viewing room upstairs for you to watch your children.

  • Long hair MUST be tied back into a ponytail for safety reasons.

  • No street pants or jeans, please. Wear form fitting t-shirts and stretchy pants/shorts, or a body suit. Gymnasts may wear non- slip gymnastics slippers, or bare feet.

  • No GUM or candy in the gym, please. It is hard to get off the mats and floors. 

  • Parents of preschool children: Please ask your child if they need to go to the bathroom BEFORE class.

  • Parents: You are responsible for your children immediately after their class is over. Our coaches will be on the floor with their next class. Please pick up your child promptly from inside the building. Our policy is to have the child wait inside the gym until you arrive. The students are not to wait outside the building for you.

  • Please be sure that your child leaves the gym with all of their clothing and belongings. The Lost and Found items will be donated every few weeks.

  • Parents please refrain from having conversations with your children while they are training (unless it is absolutely necessary) as it is disruptive to the other athletes as well as the coaches.

  • Parents please police yourselves so that we don’t have to create and enforce extra rules that no one really wants.
